Kim Hong-seon's step away from directing dramas to films has been well rewarded as his first film "The Traffickers" has jumped to first position in its opening weekend with 533 243 admissions. His feature length action thriller stars Im Chang-jung, Choi Daniel and Oh Dal-soo whom together shoved past other local favorites, such as Kim Hwi's "Neighbors" and Kim Joo-ho's "The Grand Heist", to sit proudly at the top of the pile. The top four films are all local flavors, marking yet another strong weekend for Korea's homemade brew of cinematic fantasy.
Breaking away from the local hits now, and the U.S film "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" makes its entry into the Korean market with 188,955, followed "Step Up 4" which claimed 94,188 in ticket sales. Despite Rain's successful performance during his military service, his new film "R2B: Return to Base" has seen a steady decline in interest. The action flick added just 51 498 to its cause, leaving it to pondering its very average total ticket count of 1,172,907.
